Buying textbooks just got easier, for students on a CSM financial aid plan! You can now buy your books on credit, and CSM will simply deduct the cost of your books from your financial aid award.

Use your financial aid plan to pay for books!

Use your financial aid plan to pay for books!

All you have to do is go to the Bulldog Bookstore after January 8, and tell them you want to buy your books on your credit account. You can charge up to $350 to your spring 2020 financial aid.

The amount you charge will post on your student account with code “BKF4”-Bookstore-CSM Merchandise (F/A)” and be deducted from your first and second financial aid disbursement. This service is available January 8 to February 7, 2020.

This service is completely optional. It’s up to you if you decide to use your financial aid for books. If you lose aid eligibility or do not have enough to cover the cost of your course materials, you are responsible for paying the full amount you purchased on credit.

If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at (650) 574-6147.
